The 8-man match-up between Bokoshe and Sasakwa was painful for the Tigers as they fell 74-20 to the Vikings at home Friday night.
Sasakwa took a 14-point lead in the first quarter before the Tigers scored as Bokoshe quarterback Christian Stroup connected with Nathan Tackett on a 45-yard touchdown pass. The same duo connected for the two-point conversion to cut the deficit to 14-8.
QUINTON â€” A strong second half comeback by the Quinton Savages doomed the Pocola Indians, who lost 29-20 on Friday night.
The Indians led 20-9 at halftime, but the Savages outscored them 20-0 in the second half to complete the comeback.
GORE â€” The Heavener Wolves escaped with a 13-7 win over the homestanding Gore Pirates in a defensive battle.
PANAMA â€” The story line of Friday night's game at George Ollie Stadium would have to be the domination of the Panama Razorbacks offensive and defensive lines. Warner was running an old-school offense, and it seemed like they kept wanting to ride on the back of senior Clint Kite.
Panama scored early, and then did not give up a single offensive point to Warner as the Eagles scored on an 88-yard kick return by Kite.
When the final horn sounded, the Hogs had their second win of the season, posting a 29-6 victory over the Eagles.
SPIRO â€” McKinley Whitfield accounted for five touchdowns and more than 200 all-purpose yards, fueling the Spiro Bulldogs to their second straight win as they routed the Haskell Haymakers 55-6 Friday night at McClain Stadium.
Whitfield scored on touchdown runs of 35 and 9 yards, while passing for three more TDs â€” two to Malik Walker covering 34 and 15 yards and a 22-yard scoring strike to Trevon Mitchem.
Hunter Wilson added field goals of 30 and 27 yards and was a perfect 7-for-7 on extra points for the Bulldogs.
